    Sound Issues on Eee PC 904HA with Intel HDA 82801G

    Hello,

    I am having a strange sound issue on Ubuntu 8.10 with my sound. The problem only exists when using headphones. The headphones get a large amount of loud static. I have an Eee PC 904HA with an 82801G Intel HDA sound interface. I am stumped with how to solve this problem.

    Code:
    aplay -l
    gives me this- **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC269 Analog [ALC269 Analog]
    Subdevices: 1/1
    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

    and
    Code:
    lspci
    gives this-

    Thanks to the Ubuntu team for making Ubuntu so user friendly, my Install from a USB thumbdrive took about 10 minutes!

    Have you tried muting the various inputs while listening to the headphones? I was getting a buzz on mine that ended up being from one of the inputs. I think it was the front mic but not positive. My problem was on a 900 so similar hardware at least.

    Thank you for the response, but this doesn't fix my issue. I am also not quite sure if I am using the right sound server, but I am muting the Mic Boost and capture channels on ALSA.

    We have similar problems around here. I cannot get the sound to work perfectly on EEE PC 900 nor on the 701. The build in microphone does not work on Ubuntu despite several attempts to fix it. (The hardware is fine and works on Xandros).

    This is sad because skype is a very important communication solution for us at work and among family & friends.
    Ciao, Cheers, /Macchi

    I would just like to put in that the issue exists not only in Ubuntu, but also in Fedora 10, and Sugar on a Stick. Static is only over headphone jack, all other sound components work.

    I am coming to a conclusion that this issue is just a badly shielded wire for the audio jack, and not a software issue. I will investigate further, thanks for all your help!
